Back in July, Nakai (Covie Canon) posted this, with him writing
This is an interesting little tidbit. The thing that makes me interested is him saying we'll be pleasantly surprised when we see who the leader is. I think the leader of this 'Covenant' faction will be Atriox. Now, yes, the Banished aren't a Covenant faction but something else entirely. And yes, that's true. However, I think Frankie was using the general umbrella term of 'Covenant', and also not wanting to give anything away. Also, people will argue that Atriox is busy warring with the Spirit of Fire on the Ark. True, however, we know thanks to the E3 2019 trailer/intro cutscene that the game takes place at least a few months after September 2561. So this could give plenty of time for that storyline to feed into the main plotline and bring those characters into the shooters. What'd you think, can you see Atriox possibly being the 'Covenant' leader, and would you like him to be in there?Quote:During my time at Outpost Discovery I had a chat with @franklez and he did confirm they’ll be a Covenant faction in Infinite, and I discussed my theory on its leader and he did confirm that Luro and Sali won’t be that leader. But he did say that the reveal will be a pleasant surprise. And while the Covenant lore won’t be as intense as H5, it’ll definitely be satisfying for a Covenant fan. So I’m definitely looking forward to see the Covenant in Infinite for sure!
